Trump Blasted For Promoting Restaurant He Saw On Fox News Instead Of Tackling Coronavirus Crisis
As Americans anxiously watching frightening reports on the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the country, Donald Trump took time out to use his Twitter megaphone to promote a Mexican restaurant in Arizona after watching a ‘Fox And Friends’ segment saying that the owner has come under attack for supporting Trump.
Reacting to a report on “Fox & Friends” — of course — about the owners of Sammy’s Mexican Grill being hammered for their support of the president, Trump tweeted, “The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona. Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy’s!”
Twitter users were quick to remind the president that maybe he should be spending more time dealing with the plunging stock market and a deadly virus that appears to be sweeping across the country than tweeting a restaurant review.

Instead of dealing with the worldwide pandemic or collapsing economy, this guy’s just tweeting out Yelp reviews now.

"and some, I assume, are good people"
— our president, ten seconds after calling Mexicans rapists

We have a stock market crash pending for Monday and community spread with COVID19 while Donald Trump is doing nothing to help soothe the markets with his tweets. Nothing to help prepare the people. It’s all about Trump, all the time, all day long. He answers to us all!

😂😂😂 Trump is so desperate to get Latino votes, he is suggesting Mexican food restaurants? We all know Trump hates Hispanics so much, he can't even fathom the thought of eating a taco.
